Things got emotional for the Taylor family in EastEnders tonight as viewers finally discovered a heartbreaking secret that Karen has been hiding – and they weren’t the only ones either as Keegan Baker heard the truth too.
Keegan’s newly returned dad Mitch has been causing a bit of a stir since getting his feet back under the family table and Keanu for one is not happy with him being around. As Karen was persuaded by Mitch to tell Keanu the truth about what happened with his own dad, relations between mother and son soured further.
Not giving Karen a chance to talk, Keanu told her that he was staying at Jay Mitchell’s until Mitch was gone. And when Karen arrived back in tears, Mitch offered to speak to keanu for her and reveal the truth.
Not knowing that Keegan was listening in intently, Karen opened up about the fact that Keanu’s dad was serving a life sentence for trying to stab her to death and she insisted that it would do him no good to hear this.
But now that Keegan has heard the truth, will he tell Keanu what his dad did – and where he is now? Karen has no idea currently that her youngest son knows what she has been hiding from Keanu for years but when Keegan later confronts Mitch and gets to the truth, it could implode the Taylor family.
But what is Mitch up do and does he have ulterior motives for opening this can of worms?
